I want to crochet a half sphere. I can crochet a ball, no problem (I'm crocheting in the round, by the way). However, I can't find any (readable) patterns for a half-ball (meaning a ball cut in half).
I have tried a few guesses, but I can't figure out how to make the end of the sphere flat, and not rounded as I increase or decrease (depending on if I start at the half or the end of the ball.
In reality, I want to make a lemon that looks cut in half, like what's shown in this picture. ]
I got that image from this article, which does have instructions, but they're unreadable (it has strange words mixed in)
I just need to figure how to make a half-ball. Does anyone have a pattern or any guidance on how to make the end of the half ball flat (or as flat as possible).
